She takes care of their national and legal documents to head back to St Lucia, helps with the notarization process, and provides passports to Non- Canadians. Another part of her job is meeting with investors who want to invest in St Lucia. Cheryl wanted to fulfill her country duties and step outside on a different level. She has had experience in pulling together projects for the government, and was approached by the prime minister to take on this opportunity. She says that she saw it as a chance to work out of her country and make an impact on a global scale. Cheryl is originally from St. Lucia and now serves as a diplomat for Toronto. She is best noted for her networking, corporate communications skills and her ability to pull together projects and manage them. She has a Bachelor’s in Banking and Finance and a Master’s Degree in Management. She went to school in England. Cheryl is a member of the Caribbean Association of Professionals that meets monthly and The Caribbean Consultant Corporation. She is also a part of the Rotary Club of St. Lucia, where she assists with projects for donations going to St Lucia. She does public speaking to the diaspora and also contributes to lectures and conferences with the Caribbean Association of Professionals. In 2010, Cheryl was honored with the title of "Women to Watch" in a business focused magazine. In the future she would like to be a consultant for the government in terms of investment as well as owning her own business on a contractual level. Cheryl is already successful with what she is doing and feels that is due to networking and relationships she has built across the Caribbean and internationally. She has formed great relationships with Prime Ministers across the region and they are now personal friends. Cheryl has great connections and has shadowed the Prime Minister of St. Lucia quite a bit while building great relationships along the way. She can do anything with ease because of these connections. One of her proudest moments was being able to sit and have a conversation with the Prime Minister of Canada. Another proud moment was when she closed two big investments for St. Lucia; one with India and one with Canada. Due to these deals, projects are now in St. Lucia. She is looking forward to networking and connecting with other like-minded professionals, and to gaining the recognition and credibility of being a member.
